I've been trying to make myself comatose. It isn't working. This is the first night in a week that I haven't taken an unintentional nap. The one night it would be useful!

The clouds parted long enough for me to get a glimpse of the dipper. I also saw the crescent moon earlier, but it was blurred by the overcast.

Sugar's buddy was here a couple of times, making a cat call. It suddenly dawned on me that he must be a tom, and he thinks he's going to get lucky. Hah! Not only is Sugar at least a dozen years old, but she was spayed as a kitten and would have no clue what he is after. He must not be the brightest kitty around.

I'm going to make the room dark now. In about six hours I have to be sitting in front of a machine that will look right through my clothes! Shocking!

If this turns out to be the last entry in this journal, it's most likely that the chiropractor snapped my neck and killed me. Just in case that happens-- thanks for reading and writing, LiveJournalaks. It's been fun. Now cheer up! Go read The Mayor's latest (as of 6/29/06) post.

Adjusted. The top vertebra was out. That one really hurts when it pops back in. In fact, it feels worse now than it did before. That's partly because I let it stay out too long. It's going to be a rough few days. There'll be more work on it tomorrow, and then still more in the future. Until everything is back where it belongs, I'll be spending very little time on the computer.

I got almost no sleep this morning, so tried to nap when I got back. Managed about two hours before waking with massive headache. I hope the adjustment didn't come undone while I slept. This is why I hate having morning appointments-- but nothing else was available. If I'd had a reasonable amount of sleep before going in, I could have remained moderately active for a few hours, and mostly vertical, which would have given the adjustment more time to settle. Well, I'll find out tomorrow afternoon. Sometimes it's inconvenient being out of step with the rest of the world.

Time for another five minutes with the ice pack.
